Auto-Ordnance Corporation was created in 1916 by retired US Army colonel John T. Thompson, to make the SMG he designed and was named after him.

Making various weapons and producing parts for other gunsmiths, Auto-Ordnance grew well during the 30’s and 40’s. After World War II, the company kept producing Thompson SMGs for the US armed forces and police departments, as well as for the civilian market, including collectors ; in both full and semi auto.

In 1996, Auto-Ordnance was bought by Kahr Arms. It galvanized the company, who now only produces semi automatic Thompson SMGs, as well as M1 carbines and commemorative M1911 clones.
